Symbaloo is a web based tool that my colleague, Gail Moore and I stumbled across several years ago at a VSTE conference. It is a bookmarking tool that uses visual tiles instead of text links to save sites. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Portaportal (and still use it) but for education, Symbaloo has so many possibilities as well. Below is a tutorial that I created to show you how to create your own Symbaloo.
Here is a cheat sheet you can print out to help you.
Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools, located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus, I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
